Spider-Man Review - no spoiler

  Harry Osborn is very good. A bit James Deany and then way OTT when he takes the serum. The way it is written he also has good reason to say Spider-Man is simply letting him die, which seems like a good motivation to me.

  Aunt May is a well acted character but she isn't the strong person Aunt May is. I'm afraid JMS wonderful' writing of the character ruined anybody else's for me.

  Electro is quite fun but a complete jerk. on the other hand the comic character - somebody in green and yellow pyjamas - simple wouldn't have worked.

  The kid with the windmill really deserves to die horribly. Think of it as evolution in action.

  But it suffers from the Law & Order problem - the rule that whatever happens the only real villain is the middle aged rich, white, businessman.
